the person didn't even sound angry, just informing me that my dog is all wrong and why. I just hate that with the amount of love I have for him and the amount of people that compliment him, this got me as much as it did. I know nothing about structure or coat I just never saw him as anything less than perfect and never hesitated to post pictures of him and now I just feel weird about it. I still think he's perfect but it's weird thinking there are people seeing pictures of him just being happy and making such harsh judgments.
People can be such douches.
I posted a picture here once of Corvus, and it was snagged by someone, uploaded to Icanhascheeseburger.com and made into a million different memes. Many were not nice, and referred to him as ugly, among other things. Even people I know in person tell me how ugly he is. It pisses me off, sure, but hey...in the end, *I* love my dog and *I* think he's the most handsome creature on the planet, so screw 'em. Me personally, I think the only thing ugly about Corvus is the sheer number of assholes he attracts who feel compelled to comment negatively on his looks. People who, without being asked for their opinion, think it's okay to tell someone their furry little sidekick isn't their idea of perfect have no tact and aren't worth the energy. Don't let it get to you. Merlin is fluffy cuteness, and probably has more friends than some bitter old tumblr hag.
